M.S. Education: Educational Leadership

The Department of Educational Leadership at Saint Joseph's University offers several Masters in Education leading toward Principal Certification (K-12), Curriculum Supervisor Certification (in one or more content area), and Supervisor of Special Education Certification. Upon completion of the program, students can apply to the Pennsylvania Department of Education to obtain the certification  in their course study.
